Microsoft highlights details of new gaming features coming in the Windows 10 Creators Update

Today, Microsoft announced that it will be rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update to devices next year. A major focus of the company's launch event today is creativity, but when the update arrives in early 2017, there will also be improvements for gamers.

Microsoft said that it's built Windows 10 to be the best platform for gaming, including 4K gaming. In the Creators Update, gamers can look forward to:

  • Built-in game broadcasting
    Microsoft is integrating Beam into Windows 10 with the Creators Update, including support on the Xbox One. The company acquired Beam earlier this year
  • Custom tournaments
    Gamers will soon have the ability to create custom tournaments through the Arena feature on Xbox Live
  • Audio improvements
    ​Bitstream audio passthrough support for Blu-Ray on Xbox One S, including Dolby Atmos

While these were the features that the company highlighted on stage, it's not yet clear if Microsoft has any other improvements planned for gamers in the Creators Update. The update will be coming not just to Windows 10 PCs, tablets and phones, but also to the Xbox One and Xbox One S.
